About this title

Synopsis:

An introduction to ways of researching information on people, places and events using the internet.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—Much helpful information is presented in these books, which are particularly useful as high-tech skills become necessary in finding information on the Web for research, locating multimedia files, and creating multimedia presentations. Each tutorial begins with Internet and Web basics and guides readers through steps essential for developing important skills. Colorful photos, diagrams, and sidebars and lively texts create appealing, user-friendly presentations. The books on searches explain the types of search engines and the processes used in finding results, techniques for getting the best results, how to identify the types of Web sites and determine the reliability of the information found at each, and how to use Boolean searching for even more specific results. Researching People, Places, and Events assists readers in identifying primary and secondary sources, following a code of ethics, citing sources, and other research issues. Readers also learn how to search for multimedia files; use techniques in finding, identifying, and saving different types of audio and video files; develop skills in using Google; and the importance of following fair use, as well as the steps for preparing and creating outstanding presentations. Students and teachers will find these titles useful in keeping up-to-date on and utilizing online resources and today's technology in a rapidly changing digital world.—Susan Shaver, Hemingford Public Schools, NE
